Understanding Your Loan Estimate - Services You Cannot Shop For
These costs are paid to outside parties, not the lender, but you do not get to choose them.
They may include:
- appraisal, which puts a value on your property on the lenders behalf;
- a credit report on you;
- fees to assess flood risk of your property, or for ongoing monitoring of flood zone changes related to your property;
- Tax monitoring to keep track of your property tax payments; and
- tax status research to assess the state of tax payments on the property.
While you can't shop for these services, the price for these services in your final loan disclosure MUST match the price on the Loan Estimate; items in 'Cannot Shop' have 0 tolerance for change.
